    Imma be honest
    I didn't like it, not even as a pseudo sequel to Your Name but as a movie in general. It's writing felt so disjointed and incomplete, the last third of the film being it's weakest part. I felt like it had little to no primary concept, like it didn't know what it was trying to say or accomplish by the end of it's runtime. It could've easily done without one of it's secondary plots that could've been used to punch up the relationship between the Hina and Hodoka. The only time I "felt" something was when something happened to one our main characters and they use that to simply extend the runtime with a plot that's so boring rather than choosing to explore the secondary world they had already established. Hell, even as a love story it falls short because it uses a montage to compensate for their relationship. I came in expecting a good story and left bored and wishing it did more.

    I feel like if Weathering With You came out before Your Name, it would have been the massive hit Your Name was, and Your Name would have been the controversial one. I personally like WwY more than YN. Also, everyone says it’s a visually fantastic movie, but I feel like that’s an understatement. My jaw was on the floor during the fireworks scene.

  • Julien Mason
    Julien Mason 8 годин таму

    I don’t understand why many people are saying that WwY characters aren’t as good as Your Names. Taki was underdeveloped, while Hadoka and Hina has so many moments that characterized them through excellent show don’t tell storytelling. I often find that anime rely too much on narration and words, and they forget that their viewers have eyes. That’s aside though. IMO, Hadoka and Hina are much more developed, much better characters that step up in quality from Taki and Mitsuha.

    i 100% agree with this review, the story was quite weak compared to your name. However, what was even worse was the loud obnoxious weebs that would scream hysterical laughter at every joke, movie was insufferable cause of that. Guess ill wait for the blu ray release lmao

    Your Name story is more cohesive than weathering with you. Def a tear jerker between the two characters. But I think for Weathering definitely has more elements to the story. More characters development

    I couldn't agree anymore. It was a good movie, but it's numerous similarities and comparisons to Your Name leaves me sleightly disappointed though I did enjoy it alot.

    Visually stunning film. The story would have worked much better if plot progression didn't feel so telegraphed at times, and if the main character actually had any trait beyond angst.

  • Kevin Williams

    It has potential, but I wish I could do some editing rearrangements. Many scenes fell flat and could be clipped to include more character development of the main two. I think the niece actually had the most depth.

    That's weird, I feel like this movie is more unique than your name. But I don't think is more enjoyable than your name.
    Air dragon, sunshine girl, the water bending animation, using her abilities to get money and I still can keep going on.
    What you might think is similar is because in the end, the girl was saved. Which is expected from both and the romance structure is kinda similar although is not exactly similar.

  • mpkio
    mpkio Дзень таму

    I can see your point and I agree that the structure is copy and paste of Your name, but let me ask you just one question:
    If this film came out first instead of Your Name, wouldn't it be just as good as Your Name? Because you have nothing else to compare it with.

    My point is is that I didn't compare it with Your Name. The film should be graded on its own merits, not its predecessor.

    Some archetypal characters here and there, but the animation, as you say, was gorgeous, the music is fantastic, I love the editing (sound editing included) and just the overall feeling of the movie was amazing.

    I've seen both Your Name and Weathering With You and I think I like latter more than the former. I can see how one can think the two movies are the same (if I remember correctly the two mains in Your Name show up in the movie at some point as like a little easter egg) but I think I relate more to Hodaka and Hina struggles of getting by and trying to support yourself and a family than I did with the Mizuha and Taki's.

    It’s sucks that mostly everyone keep comparing “your name” & “weathering with you”. I’ve watched your name like maybe 5 to 6times at most, fantastic movie!
    I just finished watching weathering with you and DAM! I LOVE IT! Not one bit I watch and thought about comparing the two movies. Watch it with open mind and just enjoy the movie, it’s great.☺️

    I tried to go into this movie not comparing it to Your Name. On its own, Weathering With You is a good movie. Great animation and music, interesting plot. I eventually got into the characters and philosophical themes, but it took a while and didn't reach the heights of some of my other favorite movies, Your Name included. I also need to think more about this movie's endings because on first glance it was somewhat disappointing. But all things considered, I like this movie for what it is and I'm already excited for whatever the director will make next!

    I enjoyed Weathering With You more over Your Name. YN had better impact and twists but WWY feels more lighter, innocent, and fun which I prefer in an anime movie. And don't forget the best little brother, Nagi senpai lol.

    I'm the opposite. I felt Weathering with You was a much better film than Your Name. I connected much more with the characters here. Your Name was maybe a disconnect for me because I saw it after Silent Voice and was disappointed it never reached the same emotional heights.

    Great movie.. it’s as good as Your Name. And it’s really not the “same” film.. there are quite a bit of differences. Same director, art, and genre make it similar, sure, but it’s incredible regardless.

    The film was good it really was on its own it was but if you are comparing it to your name, its not going to seem as good my note dont go into seeing this thinking its going to be exactly like your name heartfelt wise because its not. Its sad, youll cry, maybe not as hard as your name but its pretty heartwarming film i loved it. Dont go thinking its gonna have the same impact that your name did.

  • Jimmehford

    It’s definitely not unfair to compare it to Your Name. He kept comparing this movie to Your Name during his interviews about this movie. He even included characters from that film into this movie.
    I feel like Shinkai is trying to make the next Your Name and not compare himself to Ghibli or Miyazaki, and that makes me scared for his next films.
    Your Name is his magnum opus, and I feel like he will never try to make something more original and as great as that. He will keep trying to be like
    “It’s cool because it’s not Ghibli.”
    And that’s how I feel about this movie.

    I'm sorry. I believe This film is actually better than your name in terms of the emotional impact it creates for the audience. But one would have to be mature enough in the name of love would understand. Your name is great but it is a different type of love.

    Update: I understand Chris when he says it's not as good as Your name, but at the same time, I believe they shouldn't be compared. Go in with an open mind and enjoy yourself as it's a great story.
    I'd compare it to Digimon the movie vs Summer Wars: they're similar but not the same and don't compare one to the other.
    I'm gonna see it in a couple hours so now I'm kinda sad, I should've watched this review after 😭😭

    I'll post my thoughts in an edit when I'm home later

      Saw it last night and I think Chris missed the mark here. The best advice I can give for people going to watch it is DON'T do what Christ did and go in expect Your Name, it isn't that kind of a movie. It's much more light hearted and less dramatic, go in freash without trying to compare it to a masterpiece and you'll enjoy it. It's a very fun and I'd say way above average anime movie, it's just not iconic like Your Name.

    I can't say its a better movie than Your Name because that movie was pretty close to perfection, but at the same time, this movie is my favourite of the two because it resonated with me on a personal level.

    • Lord Lu Bu

      Same, it's one of those movies where from a technical and critical standpoint I think Your Name is clearly better. But this movie just connects better with me and I enjoyed it more because of that. The characters just feel more fun and relate able and that makes for an overall better movie experience

    think about it tho, in your name he saved a city In order to save his girl but in Weathering with you he doomed a city to save his girl all though it’s basically your name I like how everything movie he makes he gives raw human emotion and not some, love tale that every romantic movie has

  • TheRavingPhoenix

    Your Name hit me harder, but I think this was the better overall film. Also I interpreted the comment about the Big Mac being the best meal he'd had as referring to the girl giving it to him since he seemed clearly smitten already.

    I saw it tonight. No spoilers, but the moral of the story is so much different from your name that when you look back at the story, it’s almost like an artistic decision to make the two parallel so the end moral hits home. Idk, def go see it though :)

  • Uneducated Opinion
    Uneducated Opinion 2 дні таму

    The problem, as it is, is that he wanted to make a movie for "everyone" with Weathering, as opposed to Your Name which was very much "Japanese" in a lot of it's background and so it felt more personal to its characters. This isn't generic, but other than the Sunshine Girl and it's mythology there's nothing really tying this story to it's country of origin.

    The Big Mac thing; Japan (I don't *think* it's law, but i dunno) prides itself on products matching presentation, so anywhere you go, if there's a picture of the product, then what you buy is going to match that picture almost exact, so food stuffs, especially fast food, are amazing because you'll actually get that advertising level look of a burger.

    I actually like this more than Your Name / Kimi no Na wa, I felt like the relationship between the two leads was allowed to develop better as unlike in your name Hodaka and Hina were given the opportunity to fully interact with each other and I preferred side characters such as Mr.Suga who I feel has some real character and a somewhat decent arc over enjoyable but superficial characters like Sayaka and Tessie.

    • Lord Lu Bu

    See, as a person who goes into movies like this without any expectations, I enjoyed it very much. I think that if you go into a movie blind you will get more out of it than if u go in expecting another masterpiece. I think this movie represented making controversial decisions and dealing with the consequences. However it also says that you chose your own path and you stay on it if it makes you happy. Everyone wants happiness, but few are able to get it.

    I have a different point of view but I respect your opinion. The twist for your name was shocking but there were a lot of plot holes that really question the story. Weathering with you, even without a large twist, was just Overall more entertaining and the story of this movie was planned out carefully

    • BlueFacondor
      BlueFacondor 2 дні таму

      I loved both movies, but I enjoyed the simplistic and heart felt innocence of weathering with you. I don't need a twist to enjoy a movie.
